As Ace As They Get

Ace Hotel & Swim Club

I’ve always thought that if I could travel through time, I’d want to be taken back to a Slim Aaron’s photo. His poolside images from the swinging sixties and seventies are the epitome of cool.

While time travel might not be possible, a trip to Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs is. This ultra-chic hotel is on the grounds of a removated mid-century modern motel and is the closest thing I’ve seen to living the Slim Aaron’s dream. Using only solar power, mainly vintage furniture, low VOC paint and recycled materials, Ace is also pretty ace in the enviro stakes.

Sigh. Wish I was there….
